England Saxons off to a good start at the Churchill Cup

England Saxons off to a good start at the Churchill Cup

A hat-trick from winger Matt Banahan ensured England Saxons began their Churchill Cup campaign with a convincing win over the USA in Ottawa on the weekend.

The Saxons took a 24-10 half-time lead through two tries from Banahan and George Skivington, with Gavin DeBartolo touching down for the Eagles.

The visitors dominated the second half with scores from Anthony Allen, Banahan, Ben Foden and a penalty try.

And the last 10 minutes saw Tom Biggs and Ugo Monye adding further tries.

Fly-half Ryan Lamb had a fine game, kicking over eight conversions and adding a penalty, as well as pulling the creative strings in midfield.

The nine-try performance in humid conditions was the perfect start to the Saxons' tour of North America.

Note: This is unfortunately the only footage we have available at the moment, so while not perfect, it's still worth seeing if you're interested in following the Saxons' progress.
